Beautiful reproduction of Mary Dyer's letter
of October 26, 1659,
her only-known letter to the
Massachusetts Bay Colony General Court
|Mary Dyer letter inside my 16x20" |
gold frame, with glass.
(Does not need a mat because
of the white border.
Frame not included.
I bought this one for about $30.)
With your purchase, you'll receive a transcription of the handwriting on an 8.5x11" page. Beware--its content is not the same letter you've read in genealogy pages or other books about Mary Dyer. Those letters were rewritten after her death, to serve a different purpose.
|To show scale, the unframed 16x20" print|
next to an 8x10" framed photo.
These are Mary's words, unedited, uncensored, in her own hand, and they give you a new perspective of her thoughts on the day before she expected to be hanged.
The story of how Mary's original text was rewritten--and replaced for 350 years--is posted HERE.
This print, a keepsake and conversation piece, is a lovely gift for
- history enthusiasts
- Quaker Friends
- defenders of religious liberty
- history, art, or English teachers
- genealogy lovers
- descendants of Mary and William Dyer
- historical libraries or societies
These lovely prints are suitable for framing for your office, family room, or classroom. Once protected by your poster or picture frame, the students in your home can take this to school to show in class.
You won't find this in any museum or gift shop: it's exclusive to this site.
